Forwarder Setup - How do i setup forwarding of port 514 on a UF

New Member

I am trying to setup a Syslog Universal Forwarder on a client site which in turns forwards all syslog to my main Splunk Server.

I have the forwarder setup correctly as it can collect all local windows data on the server itself and forward that to my server. What do i need to do to setup syslog listening and then forwarding on the Splunk UF ?

i figured it out
put this in the inputs.conf

[udp://:514]
sourcetype = syslog
connection_host = dns

[tcp://:514]
sourcetype = syslog
connection_host = dns
